Mountain West mojo

By Diamond Leung

The Mountain West Conference could very well end up being the top conference on the West Coast, and San Diego State's upset at home last night against a ranked New Mexico team only highlighted its depth.

Four NCAA tournament bids aren't out of the question, according to Andy Katz, but injuries are also mounting. Even during the Aztecs' win, leading scorer Billy White went down with a high ankle sprain and could miss extended playing time.

Aztecs coach Steve Fisher indicated after the game that White's injury wouldn't be used as an excuse, telling reporters, "Nobody cares when people are hurt."

Feel free to read up about the some of the MWC's hurting players, though.
